Key Scripture: Matthew 22:15-45
First three questions the religious leaders try trap Jesus on aspects of Taxes, marriage, resurrection and the law, Jesus replies silence his enemies. He uses God’s Word to address their trapping questions. E.g.: Exodus 3:6 (argues using the tense of a verb), Deuteronomy 6:5 and Psalm 110:1.
Then Jesus asks the last question, an incredibly important critical question. What think ye of Christ?
Jesus proves to be the answer, the ultimate teacher, the ultimate bible expositor and the greatest example.
Question 1: Jesus showed complete obedience to the law and submitted to the authorities of the time
Question 2: Resurrection – Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life
Question 3: Regarding the law – He fulfils it (Matthew 5:17)
Question 4: Who is Jesus? He is our Saviour, the only way, the righteous judge and He is our LORD (Psalm 110:1) – capital L – (Adonai) (God)
